Some Great Reasons Why Everyone Should Give Acupuncture a Chance to Help
Any list of reasons to give acupuncture a chance to help can easily expand, the more you think about it. Below, I am sharing a short list of some of the most popular reasons that anyone should give acupuncture therapy a shot. Many people are not aware of all the different conditions that can be successfully remedied and healed through acupuncture.
One thing NOT mentioned in this list – acupuncture is a natural, gentle way to affect positive changes in your body, without requiring surgery or use of strong medications. I believe most would agree that if there is a natural way to successfully treat a disease or ailment, that’s the way to go.
Please enjoy, and take a moment to share with others!
1. Acupuncture helps you get a good night’s sleep.
Insomnia is a very common complaint in my Chicago acupuncture practice. Luckily, acupuncture is often highly effective at helping treat those sleepless nights. Even if you’re already a good sleeper, acupuncture can improve upon it. Many of my patients report feeling better rested after a treatment.
2. Acupuncture is a well known pain reliever.
This includes many types of pain: back pain, muscle pain, arthritis, sciatica, headaches, migraines, etc. Numerous studies describe how acupuncture increases your body’s natural pain-killing chemicals, endorphins, which are 200 times more potent than morphine
3. Acupuncture reduces nausea.
Women experiencing morning sickness now have a wonderful alternative to drugs. This becomes especially important because many pregnant patients are hesitant to take any medication.
Acupuncture can also relieve nausea from most other causes including: digestive disorders, postoperative nausea, chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. All these sufferers can get relief with acupuncture, with little to no medication.
4. Acupuncture can help you chill out.
Acupuncture is very effective for reducing stress and anxiety. It calms the nervous system and affects the way your mind, body and spirit manage the stress life can throw at us.
Acupuncture has also been found to regulate serotonin which has repeatedly been shown to positively affect your mood. It also releases endorphins, our bodies own natural feel good chemicals.
5. Acupuncture can improve energy.
Often, immediately following a treatment, you may feel very relaxed or what a few patients have referred to as “blissed out.” However, the usual longterm effect is improved energy and an enhanced sense of well-being.
6. Acupuncture is great for athletes.
Whether you’re a professional athlete or an active person, acupuncture can help you feel great and perform at your best. Acupuncture offers a drug-free option with little to no side effects to help pain relief, promote faster recovery from injuries and tough workouts, improve circulation, decrease inflammation, aid muscle relaxation, and provide better sleep and improved energy.
